Overall Not much training, Manager in my Dept. was not friendly
Real Estate Assistant (Former Employee) –  Port of TacomaOctober 18, 2016
My overall review is, it's a good work environment depending on the Dept, as each has different management; So what may go in one Dept, may not apply in another. I think everyone as a company should be on the same page, so everyone feels they are getting a fair shake. Co-workers were ok, some more helpful than others.

The hardest part is walking in and expecting to read minds and what the job entails with no direction.
Pros
Good Food, Pay is good
Cons
Very Stuffy

Horrible management and hr department
Journeyman (Current Employee) –  Tacoma, WASeptember 2, 2016
The pay and benefits are top notch, however politics and management make it a dreadful place to work. People who are totally unqualified seem to advance the most.
Pros
Pay, benefits
Cons
Most departments are extremely understaffed, management has no clue how to run a maintenence department, favoritism and corruption run rampant, questionable job security.

Great place to work!
Commercial Group Intern (Former Employee) –  Tacoma, WAAugust 10, 2014
I would typically be assigned projects on a Monday that were due on Friday and left alone to get the job done. Management did a really good job on giving employees everything they need to succeed.
Pros
Fun work environment
